|Chronic Pancreatitis Diabetes Mellitus Islet Cell Transplantation||Procedure: Intrahepatic islets and islets in the omental pouch Procedure: Intrahepatic islets alone Other: Normal Volunteers||Not Applicable|
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||45 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Masking:||None (Open Label)|
|Official Title:||A Randomized Trial of Intra-Portal Alone Versus Intra- and Extra-Portal Transplantation of Pancreatic Islets After Total Pancreatectomy for Chronic Pancreatitis|
|Actual Study Start Date :||August 1, 2019|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||December 31, 2023|
|Estimated Study Completion Date :||December 31, 2023|
|Active Comparator: Intrahepatic islets alone||
Procedure: Intrahepatic islets alone
This is the standard of care procedure. Patients with islet harvest of >5000 islet equivalents per kg body weight will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to all islets autotransplanted intrahepatically via the intraportal route.
|Experimental: Intrahepatic and omental pouch islets||
Procedure: Intrahepatic islets and islets in the omental pouch
Patients with islet harvest of >5000 islet equivalents per kg body weight will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to 4000 IEq/kg delivered via intraportal route and the remainder implanted into a constructed omental pouch.
|Sham Comparator: Normal Volunteers||
Other: Normal Volunteers
These individuals will undergo metabolic testing as well as islet cell function testing.
- Portal vein thrombosis [ Time Frame: Post operative day 4 or 5. ]Portal vein thrombosis is associated with higher tissue volume infused into the portal vein and higher portal pressures and is assessed using abdominal ultrasound.
- Clavien-Dindo classification of surgical complications [ Time Frame: Within 30 days of surgery ]Grades surgical complications based on the level of treatment necessary to treat the complication.
- Mixed Meal Tolerance Test [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Patient is given Boost HP (6cc/kg), ingested 5 minutes after t=0 blood draw. Blood is drawn every half hour for 2 hours.
- Intravenous Glucose tolerance test [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Patients are given a bolus of 0.2mg/kg of dextrose at t=0. Blood samples will be drawn at t=-10,-5,-1,2,3,4,5,7 and 10 minutes
- Glucose potentiated arginine stimulation [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Starting immediately after glucose tolerance test (time t=10 minutes), 20% dextrose will be infused to maintain a glucose ~230mg/dL until test is completed. Glucose levels are measured every 5 minutes to maintain glucose in the target range after 40 minutes of continuous 20% dextrose infusion, After 40 minutes of continuous D20% infusion, baseline samples for glucose, insulin, and C-peptide are drawn (three samples over 10 minutes), a bolus of 5 grams arginine is given (at time 55 minutes), and samples for glucose, insulin, and C-peptide are taken at 2, 3, 4, and 5 minutes after
the arginine bolus.
- Hypoglycemic clamp [ Time Frame: 1 year ]A stepped hypoglycemic clamp protocol with variable glucose infusion rates will be performed to achieve 45 min glucose plateaus at 70, 60, and 50 mg/dl.Glucagon responses will be calculated by subtracting the mean of the three baseline values observed prior to the clamp from glucagon levels observed at 70, 60, and 50 mg/dl glucose nadirs during the clamp
- Continuous glucose monitoring [ Time Frame: 1 year ]3 days of CGM monitoring at one year will be obtained for mean glucose,standard deviation, and percent of time in hypo- and hyperglycemia
- Hemoglobin A1c levels [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Measure of average glucose levels over last several weeks
- Insulin Use [ Time Frame: 1 year ]calculated as units/kg/day, will be assessed from glucose and insulin diaries maintained by patients for 14 days, overlapping with day 90
- Hypoglycemic episodes [ Time Frame: 1 year ]All severe hypoglycemic events will be recorded. This is defined based on American Diabetes Association criteria as a hypoglycemic episode <54 mg/dL or (if not measured) associated with prompt recovery upon administration of glucose in which a patient is mentally or physically incapacitated and requires assistance from another person to treat the hypoglycemia.
- Clarke score [ Time Frame: 1 year ]is determined from eight questions characterizing the participant's exposure to episodes of moderate and severe hypoglycemia; it evaluates symptomatic responses to hypoglycemia. A score of 4 or greater suggests impaired awareness of hypoglycemia
